A total of £1337 was raised during our Mental Health Awareness Week, led by the Sixth Form Health Committee. This money was gratefully received by Mrs Margaret McCrossan, from the worthy charity, AWARE. It will be used to educate and support those living with or family members of those who cope with mental illnesses such as Depression and Bipolar disorder.
